Waiting on Wednesday (7) : The Rest Of Us Just Live Here, Patrick Ness

Originally coming from the Breaking The Spine blog, Waiting on Wednesday allows me to talk about a book I just can’t wait to get my hands on. Let’s get started !

Don’t forget to tell me about the book you’re eager to read, this week, in comments!

The Rest Of Us Just Live Here, Patrick Ness
Expected publication : August 27th 2015
Publisher : Walker Books

What if you weren’t the Chosen One?

What if you’re not the one who’s so often the hero in YA fiction; who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you were like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life. Even if your best friend might just be the God of mountain lions…

Okay, I plead guilty : I never read a Patrick Ness novel. Well, not yet, at least. I’ve heard so many good feedback about his stories, and read reviews of amazed people. To be honest, Patrick Ness’ work has been on my radar for long. So, why do I choose this book to talk about, this week? Honestly, as vague as the synopsis is, it’s the one that makes me intrigued. I don’t really have enough words, this week, to talk about how excited I am to get my hands on this. Just read this synopsis, and feel this title. And feel this : “sometimes you just have to feel the extraordinary in your ordinary life”.  Maybe I’ll get my hands on another Patrick Ness novel before I can read this one (August, seriously ?!), but something’s sure : I’ll be waiting for this. I can’t wait to see what you hold in this different concept you’re promising.
